The Power of Positive Fitness


Author John Rowley is a motivational speaker who has been affiliated with Martha Stewart, Fox News and the Wall Street Journal. He’s also been a bodybuilder for most of his life and actually bought the gym where Lou Ferrigno was seen training in “Pumping Iron.” Impressive credentials, but more than anything Rowley is a coach.

Much of his new book, The Power of Positive Fitness—Maximizing Physical, Mental & Spiritual Health,” consists of highly motivating pep talks, complete with interesting slice-of-life stories. He recites them with excitement and meaning, as a good coach would. The one with the most impact is John’s own story of coming back from a horrific car crash when he was 19. It was life-changing on a number of levels.

With his newfound determination and motivation, Rowley eventually became a Manhattan real estate mogul. Not bad considering he started in the janitorial business! But this book is more than just inspiring stories. There are plenty of rock-solid training and eating strategies for building muscle and health (most of them align with my beliefs, so I give those sections a big thumbs-up). John preaches real weight training and eating like a bodybuilder, which is the lifestyle most folks should be following for optimal health and wellness.

Toward the end of the book he presents a number of short interviews with successful, fit people, including Jennifer Nicole Lee, Shawn Phillips, Tom and Dawn Terwilliger and Doug Brignole, to name a few.

The Power of Positive Fitness is filled with sound information and get-you-going motivation from a “coach” who talks the talk and walks the walk. And coincidentally, the foreword is by Coach Lou Holtz. Stay positive, harness the power, and succeed beyond your wildest dreams.
